Underrated early 70s TV gem
22 September 2003 | by (Bury, England) – See all my reviews

Although there is a quite obvious influence from BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID, this TV pilot has an energy and humour that made it thoroughly entertaining in its own right. Duel and Murphy (as Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry) establish a quick rapport and Duel in particular delivers some priceless lines. Holliman is also deliciously funny as gang member Wheat, who challenges Duel's Heyes for leadership of the gang. The opening twenty minutes provide the set-up for Duel and Murphy to seek amnesty for their crimes. Drury is suitably deadpan as an old-friend, now a sheriff, who is their spokesperson with the governor and there is much fun with how the pair cope with temptation as they are hired as guard and teller at a bank run by Susan Saint James. Forrest Tucker also shines as a dozy deputy in an excellent supporting cast. The following series was the last in a run of classic TV westerns and was the best of its lightly-comic style since "Maverick".
